ECS 6950 - 009 Latina/x Feminist Theory & Ped


This course delves into the transformative pedagogies inherent in historical and contemporary Latina/x feminist theories, including chicana/x, afro-latina/x, and diasporic Latin American feminist theories. It explores how these theories, deeply rooted in “theory in the flesh” or intellectual production shaped by personal experience, utilize education as a tool for social transformation. By examining the interplay between personal experiences and identity formation, the course emphasizes the crucial role of identity construction at the intersections of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, ability, religion, and nationality. Additionally, it investigates how Latina/x aesthetic expressions contribute to processes of self-formation, transformation, and resistance, positioning them as central to educational practices that aim to foster social change.
